    I saw some similar threads posting about their experience with Kaplan as well as the difficulty comparison between the Kaplan practice tests and the real OAT. I took my OAT today and I was very happy with my scores. I thought that the live online Kaplan course adequately prepared me for the test. I also believe that the Kaplan practice tests were slightly more difficult in the orgo, gen chem, physics and quantitative reasoning sections. I thought that the biology and reading comprehension sections were very accurate. My scores consisted of....

    Kaplan1/Kaplan2/Kaplan3/RealOat
    Bio:290/320/320/310
    GChem:320/360/320/350
    Ochem:300/370/360/400
    RC:280/360/330/310
    Physics:320/330/310/340
    QR:300/310/330/360
    AA:300/340/330/350
    TS:310/360/330/360

    I hope this helps some people gauge their Kaplan practice test scores, I know it gave me peace of mind while studying!

    Great scores ! The oat guide says that in the quantitative reasoning section there are new types of questions like quantitative comparison and that geometry & trigonometry are taken out. Did you see any of these new types of questions & did you have any geometry/trig ? Thanks !

    Now that you say that, I didn't see any trig/geometry questions. And I'm not sure if there were any of the quantitative comparison questions.

    I thought it was easier than the kaplan practice tests. The kaplan strategy says not to use the calculator but I used it on most of the questions, which helped a lot.

    whoa how'd you find out about this? I checked the 2017 oat guide and seems legit. And what exactly are quantitative comparisons?

    I just saw it from the guide ! They are GRE type questions but it's odd the ADA hasn't really said much about it
